According to the Department of Justice’s Uniform Crime Reporting Statistics, the United States had roughly 9,082,887 property crimes in the year of 2010. With 2,159,878 burglaries, 6,186,867 larcenies, and 737,142 motor vehicle thefts, it’s clear that property crime is a prevalent issue. However, the United States has its fair share of violent crimes as well. In the same year there were a total of 1,246,248 violent crimes including 14,748 cases of murder and non-negligent homicides, 778,901 aggravated assaults, 84,767 instances of forcible rape, and 367,832 robberies.
Crime is something that can’t be completely stopped but concerned citizens can prevent criminals from breaking the law. One way concerned citizens are defending their neighborhoods is by utilizing live police scanners.
A police scanner, also known as a radio scanner, is a communication device that is capable of receiving radio transmissions wirelessly. Just like walkie-talkies, these types of communication devices allow for two-way radio transmissions and are frequently used by various industries to promote public safety and improve business operations.
Police scanners also work very similarly to AM/FM radios; however, an AM/FM radio can only receive AM/FM signals. A police scanner receives multiple signals and bands simultaneously. This allows users to track and listen to several channels at once, something basic radios cannot do.
Police scanners receive numerous radio frequencies that are used by law enforcement officials. This allows the scanner operator to listen in on law enforcement officials and get a better understanding as to what types of crimes are occurring in any given community.
The ability to directly communicate with law enforcement grants concerned citizens the ability to stay up to date with criminal activity in the operator’s community. This helps improve safety and crime fighting efforts like neighborhood watch programs.
